director for the republican national committee. dana loesch, who is a talk radio host and tea party activist. and matt welsh, who's editor in chief of "reason," and he's also author of the book "the declaration of independence: how libertarianism politics can fix what's wrong with america." great to have all you guys here today. [ applause ] and shawn, i know you're shawn spicer. i know that anyway. but let me start with you. republicans are fighting right now, particularly in the house and senate, over whether or not to defund obama care, even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea, bad idea? >> i think in general it's a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. we recognize the fact that more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up. the problems continue with the imation of obama. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic on how to make that happen. some people believe that we can defund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe that you're not able to do that
guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. as you read in the paper, it is "the five"! so last week we told you about the brutal beating of a 13-year-old white kid by three african-american teens on a school bus in florida. on "the five," we have been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue. still haven't heard a word from al sharpton, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make contact of the family of the kids because we should discourage people attacking people, whether black, white, white, black, people should stop attacking people. you must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way, and if it comes black white white black, it makes matters worse, it does not make it better. >> took awhile, but give credit where credit is due. ref recommended jesse jackson steppedd made a comment. >> he was in africa and had been away. he said black white, white black, he went to the core of the thing and sai
crips? >> well, more likely they're engaged in warfare over drugs, dana doesn't like the hate crime legislation, i'm not particularly favorable to it either. but in some cases, you don't have anything to fall back on. where in some cases, a person gets killed because they're gay, and then the feds can come in and say it is a hate crime. that is a situation where i think it is fine. we talked about this yesterday, a lot of countries in the world think we're crazy for what we do about guns here. and it is something that is a major conversation piece in other countries because we do allow guns freely to move around in this country. and we have guns moving around, you get people who are hateful people like this get their hands on it. >> we don't let guns roam around freely. >> yes, we do. >> no, you are required to get a background check. the only ones running around are those purchased illegally. one more thing to point out, in this exact case, a .22 caliber pistol was used. it is illegal to own a pistol until you were 21 years old in this country. they broke the law there, guarantee t
strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
they wrapped up a conference call. more from dana bash. this conference between the white house and members of congress, what do you know about it? >> i just talked to a lawmaker on that call and it lasted for more than an hour, close to an hour and a half and the gist of the administration's message is what we've heard publicly, they believe that assad's regime did use chemical weapons, that was the main message. they insisted that no decision has been made with regard to military action. there is no timetable on what or when that would be, but i'm also told even though there were 20 to 25 people of both parties on this call with administration officials, the secretaries of state and defense and others, it wasn't antagonistic. i'm told it was a good discussion. they listened to everybody's opinions, the opinions i'm sure as you suspect were varied but nobody said don't do it. one of the questions i had, was what the effect in great britain would be on members of congress. the answer that obama officials gave is that the u.s. is going to do what it needs to do, and another country will not
's go to capitol hill. dana bash is standing by. even before the president has spoken, tan ndana, some republi already starting with some preemptive reaction, shall we call it. >> reporter: that's right. it's going on so far in private in conversations that i've had with some republicans here on capitol hill. the nsa surveillance program is one of the few areas where you've actually seen republicans agree with the president. think that this program is the right thing to do for american security. so expect republicans to say that they're concerned about what jessica reported, widening the transparency of this program. because they say the problem isn't the program, it's the way the president has communicated about it or maybe the better way to say it, has not communicated about it. i think you're going to see some criticism, maybe skepticism on the republican side. the whole question, though, is what democrats are going to do. because they have been probably the most vocal critics of this program. particularly those on the left. you have senators like mark udall of colorado. i just spok
that followed. and now president obama is weighing in. we'll have the details, and dana perino will be in to talk about it. >>> a fright canning new report on the safety of the nation's nucleares plant, vulnerable to terror attacks,. >>> the feds investigate aing after miss teen u.s.a. claims a hacker broke into her commuter and then used her
that ft. leavenworth will do that. it looks like dana coombs will have to sue the army or petition on medical grounds to get bradley manning transferred to a federal prison where perhaps he could get that therapy because due to army and d.o.d. regulations, ft. leaven swort not going to give that hormone therapy much less sex reassignment surgery. carol? >> if he did get this treatment, this hormone replacement therapy, who would pay for it? >> it would be the government. it would be the taxpayers. that's the way it is for any prisoner. basically, if you're a prisoner, the state or the government is responsible for your medical care because you can't fund your own medical care. there have been some rulings in the past where federal courts have struck down laws in which some states try to prohibit these taxpayer-funded hormone therapy regimens. again, some of the courts have struck those down saying you can't do that. and some prisoners have been receiving hormone therapy. sexual reassignment surgery is still relatively new. that also has been looked on somewhat favorably by some of
: scared. dana bonano vanished about three weeks ago. her mother received that text message on the night of her daughter's disappearance and told police she received no other text explaining why her daughter was scared. still missing almost three weeks later: >>> who did the background check on ed snowden? new questions about that company, and now an entire community's future might be on the line if the company did something wrong. patti ann: plus, the feds looking into planned parenthood. what is the group doing with millions of your taxpayer dollars?

of a threat. but dana lash, she is on the other side of the fence, she tweeted this. this is the same naacp who called a black man beaten by an sieu an uncle tom on tape. what do you think about it? i think we asked people for e-mails. >> brian: a lot of people saying during what president bush's time, look what bill maher and others said about him. lesley writes from florida and says any american sure the right to mock the president. he isn't our king or emperor. >> gretchen: her she will said, when did it become such a big deal to joke about the president? it's been going on throughout our history. really? investigate the clown? >> peter: and if it had been a clown with a bush or reagan mask, nobody would have said a word about it, according to dennis in ohio. charles from oklahoma, i think we should respect the office of the president whether we voted for him or not. >> gretchen: all right. that -- it's a controversial story. i think we'll have comments. >> brian: we know one thing, like it or not, there is a clown at a kinko's right now writing up a resume hoping to get another job. >>
